leaving 680I

but you are saying evga and xfx use reference design
is that why they look so much alike i almost thought they were identical
Yes, those two look almost identical because they are reference designs. It's gonna be your most stable option.

but there are 2 revisions A1 and T1

they seem identical excepth the price does anyone know the difference
I can't remember which is which, but whichever the more expensive option is has a lifetime warranty, and people speak very highly of EVGA's RMA, plus they moved a small chip on the back behind the CPU that makes it easier to mount a CPU HSF Backplate without messing things up. There's other small changes, I'm sure, but those are the only ones I'm aware of.

is it really worth saving for over the 680i
i mean its great and all but will it take my processor faster or up my ram OC or am i paying for bells whistles and a bigger E-Penis
In my opinion, yes, it is worth saving, but that's only because I forked out $150 for my 680i LT a few months ago, and now I'm having to explain to my wife why I need to spend another $250 to upgrade that component, plus the cost of another copy of Windows. I just wish I would have done it right the first time. But the 680i might just be perfect for you. And yes, it does give you a better E-Penis. It's not so much bells and whistles as it it better quality parts and a more stable board for overclocking, and especially stable on Quads.

oh ps masterchief
64 bit is better than 32
if you truly have four gigs of ram you cannot access it
